While there was work on tables to my right and to my left, my eyes fixated on this totem/sculpture standing straight ahead as we entered the backyard. I'm not sure if I'd seen Susan Risis work before but this one was super fun.
So many of these wanted to come home with me...
Clay hearts and fused glass critters.
Deborah Hodder gave a demonstration building with large coils.
These coils were at least an inch in diameter.
Once the coils were blended she began to shape and draw into the clay.
An example of a finished piece using this technique.
I enjoyed walking through the studio looking at the variety of Deborah's work.
I came home with a red heart of my own. I could imagine many of these hanging from my trees!
I hope you've enjoyed our tour of the 2012 ceramics studio whirlwind. It's something to look forward to next year.
